Patterson Donates $2.5 Million to Teachers

James Patterson is continuing the Patterson Partnership with Scholastic Book Clubs for a sixth year, this time pledging $2.5 million to libraries in classrooms. He will give 5,000 teachers grants of $500 each (with Scholastic Book Clubs offering matching funds in the form of bonus points) to buy books for the classroom. The 5,000 winners were chosen from over 100,000 entries.

For more information, including the complete list of recipients, see the Scholastic website.
